Dr. MOI-BO'S father is here from Stuart visiting him. C. L. Lund has been in Ohio the past week on a business trip. Six new members joined the Congregational church Sunday. A baby died Sunday at John McWhorter's in Plum Creek. A. M. & G. M. Johnson have a word on farm machinery this week. Company F meets this evening to elect a captain in H. J. Edens' place. The Columbian club will meet with Mrs. Ingham on Friday evening of this week. The Courier is feeling proud over a new Gordon job press which came yesterday. A breach of promise case is on for this term, Minnie Shrador sueingGust. Blake. Twenty-six wolf scalps have been turned in at the auditor's office in the last few weeks. Court begins next Monday with Judge Carr presiding. The calendar presents the usual lot of business. A special meeting of the Odd Fellows' lodge will be held this evening. Members are requested to be present. The supper announced at the Methodist church last Sunday morning has been postponed until some future time. Marriage licenses have been issued to Christian Baago and Hansine Anderson, John C. Lallier and Anna Bou- raner. The B. Y. P. U. will give a May basket social at the Baptist church Friday evening of this week. Everybody invited. The dancing party Friday evening initiated the new hall very pleasantly. Algona now has as fine a dancing hall as she could ask. A train load of stock from Plum Creek went to Chicago last week, and a number of shippers went along and saw the world's fair. W. F. Carter has twelve horses all of them either imported or standard bred. That is a pretty fair stable to be owned in a town like Algona. The Masons are requested to meet at the lodge room this evening at 8 p. m. sharp to make arrangements for the burial of Bro. S. G. A. Read. The Uncle Tom's Cabin company play Saturday next without fail. The admission is 25 cents, which is cheaper for what they give than half the circuses. The regular time for the annual old settlers' meeting will soon be here. Last year no meeting was held. The old settlers should keep up their organization. L Since returning with her sister from the south Miss Clara Zahlten has had a very severe attack of typhoid fever. Miss Emma's health is improved since her return. Letters remain uncalled for in the Algona postofflce for Mrs. R. Carvary, A. Cutterback, Mrs. Nellie Ersingtrag- er, Mrs. Jarvis, Miss Saville Leonard, T. G. Moore, W, Markell, John Pierce, J. D. Welch. Supt. Cleland Gilchrist of Pocahontas and Supt. Donlon of Palo Alto stopped in Algona last night on their way to Clear Lake for the superintendents' meeting. J. W. Sullivan was over in Emmetsburg again last week. We suspect there is something in the surmise of the Democrat, although just what does not yet appear. The county superintendents of northern Iowa meet at Clear Lake today and will remain in session till Friday night. Supt. Reed expects to attend and will go tonight or tomorrow. David Dutton found .his son Gib. quite low out at Aberdeen and brought him home with him. The doctors pronounce the trouble quick consumption, and recovery very doubtful. Geo. Hunter is now at the head of the livery stable on Thorington street south of the 'Pennant house, and has an announcement in this issue. George has good horses and will succeed, Wesley people don't fancy the new train service very well. The lightning express don't stop either way. Algona and Whittemore are the only stations in the county where stops are made. A trade by which F. W. Dingley becomes owner of the John Robinson house, now occupied by Prof. Dixson, was made last week. Mr. Robinson gets the lots east of the Congregational church. Since selling his homo property to M. F. Randall, J. D. Shadle has bought the old Walston lots owned by J. B. Hofius and will build his permanent home on them. He expects to sell the house he is now building. A democratic petition is being circulated asking that the choice of postmaster in Algona be settled by an election. Not having seen it we cannot say whether Bro. Hinchon, like Abou Ben Adhem, heads the list or not. A. D. Clarke says that the chief discussion at the Ogden meeting he attended was over silver. They talked about waterways some but silver a good deal. Joton P. Irish was there to oppose silyeiNnd talk up President Cleve- land, but the gathering was four to one for free silver coinage and so resolved. It was lucky for the actors last night that " Macbeth" does not contain the thrilling passage " we'll hang our banners on the outer wall and cry ' more rain, more rain, more rain.'" Booth himself couldn't say that and get away unharmed. L. J. Bice has bought two lots between H. S. Langdon's and Geo. Simpkins' on McGregor street and will build this season. Mr. Hay takes alt the property on Thorington street north of the Judge Call house, but may hot build this year. Now that the Sunday trains from the west are running the Episcopalians will have regular services every Sunday evening^ Rev. DeForest will preach at Emmetsburg in the morning and at Algona in the evening, keeping up both parishes. Sheriff Graham says he did not visit Washington and had no such Intention. He goes to Chicago this week and Mrs. Graham will return with him next week. Her health is improving. The suit for damages for her injury comes on this term of court. Col. Cooke has received the pay for the members of the rifle team last fall. The state has been a little slow in getting matters straightened out owing to en. Greene's sickness, but the money always conies handy, and is a great deal better late than never. A large new frame house has been erected on the Hegarty farm north of the Milwaukee depot, and the old pioneer log cabin is vacant. That is one of the county's historic cabins and with the one on Alex. Brown's farm is about all that is left of early architecture. Next week Saturday the good roads meeting will be held at Grange hall, [f there is anything that can be done for better roads or anybody has an idea on the subject, this meeting should be well attended. The resolutions adopted a few weeks ago will be up for discussion. The Baptist society appointed E. P. McElroy to draft some resolutions expressing their gratitude over the suc- 3ess of their dedication exercises. Limited room prevents us from publishing them at length, but they speak in high terms of praise of the work of all who participated. The recent additions to the membership of the Methodist church are making the officials talk about the need of more room. It is rumored that a $15,000 building is being planned for next year, to stand where the present one does. If they build they intend to have a handsome church. The liberality of Supt. Hughes of the Northwestern railroad should be appreciated in Algona. He arranged an extra going north last-night after the theatre, aslung no guarantee whatever. The Northwestern is very accommodating and the people should give it substantial recognition. The muddy streets again this spring have caused some talk of brick paving. Mayor Call says that figuring the work on the basis of the contracts lot in Des Moines, it would cost for the same paving in State street about §75 or §80 a business front. This is not an extravagant outlay, and in the long run would save money to the city. A lecture will be given at the Baptist church next week Friday evening by E. P. McElroy on the subject" Teas- les and Chestnuts." It is a discussion of certain amusing features of our social life, and all who have heard Mr. McElroy will be prepared for a treat. A large audience should attend. Word comes from Eagle Grove and Humboldt that the Brunson boys have had two big audiences and are giving a fine show. Their balloon man met them at the latter place and made the ascent, and will be with them from this on. There is no fake about the balloon ascension. It is as represented. An action of certiorari has been brought in this term of court to have the directors of the Ledyard independent district report in court with the record o_f their official proceedings. The action is taken by Springfield township, several sections of which have been included in the district. Springfield wants them back and alleges all sorts of illegal actions on the part of Ledyard in organizing. Geo, E. Clarke has charge of the Springfield side of the case, We notice that at the Spirit Lake Chautauqua, July 10-25, a declamatory contest is to be held in which students of the public schools of Iowa may compete, and in which the winner gets a free trip'to the world's fair. This is a good chance for some ambitious student to see the " white city" cheaply, and Algona's declaimers should be in it. Full programmes of the Chautauqua can be had after June 1 by addressing Senator Funk at Spirit Lake. Rev. Davidson performed a pleasant marriage, ceremony Sunday afternoon at the Mulica home by which Geo. F. Hackman and Sadie Mulica were united, George is one of Kossuth's native products, being born and raised here, and is one of the most energetic and successful farmers in Cresco township. He wins an admirable wife and starts in life with every prospect of good fortune. THE UPPER DES MOINES joins in well wishing and congratulations. A curious coincidence occurred not long ago as Frank Dingley and Rev. McElroy were talking together. Mr. Dingley asked him if he had had any rel- latives in western New York some 25 years ago. Mr. McElroy replied that ho had not, but later remembered that he had begun his ministerial work in a village there, and farther inquiry elicited the fact that Mr. and Mrs. Dingley had attended his church regularly. They enjoyed talking over old times and recalling mutual acquaintances. Harry Dodge was in Emmetsburg last week prosecuting a suit against Chas. and Stephen Barringer of Ruthven for the pay for three car loads of horses sold to them last year. W. B. Quarton conducted tho case and won a verdict of $1,375. An attachment had been sued out to prevent the defendants from disposing of all their property, but enough was not secured to make the judgement and costs. G. L. Sutton was a witness in the case and spent the time at the Burg with the others. A home talent dramatic entertainment is being gotten up by tho young people to be given under the auspices of the reading room. Mr. L. Rufu& Hill is in charge of the company and is training them for "Imogene" or "The Witch's Secret." The parts have all been assigned and are in the hands of such well known young people as Misses Edith Clarke, E. Reeve, and Maud 3owan; Messrs. B. W. Haggard, Irwin Oodge, Geo. Hamilton, C. B. Matson, 5Yed Clarke and others. It is expected that the play will be ready by May 23. Full particulars will be given later. A damage suit for $2,000 has been begun against Algona by Geo. Wheeler, ivho lives about six miles northwest. Last 'summer when the water main ditches were being dug on Thorington street, he drove into one about ll o'clock at night, and injured a horse and was shaken up some himself. A proposition to settle the matter was nado to the council, but the city attorney on investigation decided thatthere was no liability and the council refused. W. B. Quarton is Mr. Wheeler's attorney and W. L. Joslyn will represent the city. The school land sale Monday shows how land is valued in Kossuth. Two sections were sold, 10-100, 28, and 16-99, 29. The northeast quarter of the first went to A. D. Clarke at $17 an acre, northwest quarter to H. S. Pfeffer at !17.25, southeast to A. D. Clarke at 515, and southwest to Julius Pleth at 515.50. Tho northeast quarter of the second section went to W. C. Danson at $14.75, northwest to Julius Pleth at$15, southwest to Mr. Barber at $17.50, and southeast to A. Hutchinson at $14. It is reported that one of our city mstors announced last Sunday morning ,hat it would be wrong to attend the )erformance of "Macbeth." Henry Ward Beecher once said that he bought it was safe for any one past 70 years, and frequently went to the the- itre himself, while Dr. Duryea, proba- jly the ablest Congregationalist in the west, advocates attendance upon the >etter class of theatres and operas. So ong as Shakespeare's plays are road in schools, and dramatic recitation is encouraged there, it would seem singular .hat a combination of the two should )e objected to. C. H. Ingersoll, brother-in-law of Mr. Ipurbeck, had three finger-tips clipped oil last Thursday in the planning machine at the butter tub factory. He was planning some short pieces of wood and pushing them along by holding his •ight hand flat on top of them. The planer took hold of one a little harder ;han usual and threw it back from under his hand and his fingers slid right .nto the knives. The first and second ingers were cut off at the first joint and the third just below the nail. Dr. E£enefick fixed up the wounds as soon as tie could arrive and Mr. Ingersoll is .mproving as rapidly as could be expected. The jury in the boiler explosion case at Garner, in which Geo. E. Clarke was defending the owner of the boiler, was out from 3 o'clock in the afternoon til 10 o'clock the next morning and re- iurned a verdict of $200 for the plaintiff. Suit was brought for $8,000 as damages for the death of the boy who was killed in the explosion, but the jury evidently considered that nominal Jamages were all that should be assessed. Mr. Clarke says his client will not appeal, as he feels that the award is as satisfactory as he could hope for. The case was bitterly contested and lasted a larger part of last week and the week before. Supt. Reed has received the full vote of the county schools on a state tree and flower, and it reverses the decision of the Algona schools on the flower. The oak as the tree holds its own by the following total: Oak, 1174; maple, 343; elm, 293. In the vote on a flower the Algona schools gave the pansy the preference but the county puts the rose ihead by seven votes, the totals being: Rose, 071; pansy, 064; golden 1-0^7.4 The same vote has been taken in Sioux City Journal says: "From present indications all the new railroads jutlt this year, with few exceptions, vill be west of Missouri. In Iowa there are only three roads the con- itruction of which seems assured. One s the Milwaukee branch from Algona, Iowa, to Jackson, Minnesota., and the Nebraska Central road from Omaha to Fort Dodge, and the Sioux City, Chica- fo, and Baltimore road from Sioux 3ity east thirty miles. Other lines are talked of. but as yet they are only on paper. These three companies are the only ones that have the money at hand with which to build. Other companies may do considerable work, but it will 3e in the way of improvements. Rail- •oad building in Iowa is about done for .he present, with the possible excep- ilon of a few extensions of lines now in operation. The three lines I speak of, lowever, are a certainty, as inside work is being done." SHAKESPEABE'S flBEAT TRAGEDY. ' Mncbeth" was Presented to n Full House Last Evening by Madame Janauscliek. The opera house was filled last even- ng with a fine audience to hear Janauschek and her company in "Mac- aeth." All our neighboring towns were fully represented, and altogether t was the best audience that has yet seen out. To those who had read their 'hakespeare the play was an enjoyment from beginning to end, and all caught something of the spirit of the tragedy. As Lady Macbeth, Janauschek sustained her reputation, won many years ago, as one of the leading tragediennes on the American stage, tvhile Collier as Mucbeth did not fall >ehind her. All the parts were well aken, and considering the limited tage facilities Algona enjoyed as fine v presentation of Macbeth as any com>any now on the stage can give. j ORR & PATTERSON do all kinds of louse, sign, and carriage painting, and *eep a full stock of paints on hand at .heir State street wareroom. See them .hem before letting your contract.-? PIMENTO DULCES—Something new. This is considered by epicures a very delicious morsel. It is a sweet Spanish •ed pepper preserved in pure olive oil. Don't eat too many the first meal, as they have the reputation of laying a good foundation for gout. Find them at W. F. Carter's.—7t2 counties and the total will be published by the state superintendent, and then we shall know what our state emblems are. The oak and rose make a pretty good combination. A force of men came out from Chicago last week to put some new roofs on the Northwestern depot buildings. When they arrived they were all the worse for Chicago lake water or other Illinois beverages, but one of them was sober enough to contract with Mrs, McCall for board, When the rest of them came they rummaged over the liouse, and one of them fell down the stairway, rolling the whole length. Next morning he went arround to each of his companions and pointed out various bumps and scars and asked him how he came by them. None of the party could remember what had happened, and for all anyone knows he is still wondering how he got lamed up so badly. The meeting of the social union club was held in the main room of the church Friday evening and a large audience attended. The feature of the programme was Prof. Dixson's talk on air. He had experiments to show the character of oxygen and nitrogen, and how they are separated, and also to show the weight of the air and how it it is determined, which were very entertaining. Miss Lizzie Wai lace recited two short selections with fine expression, and Harvey Ingham read a paper on some features of southern life. A fine piano solo by Mrs. Soeley, and an equally fine vocal duett by Maude Cowan and Ruby Smith formed an interesting part of the exercises. Archie Hutchinson was appointed programme committee for the May and June meetings. The much talked of new Milwaukee fast train started in Sunday evening and is now making daily trips. From Sanborn to Chicago it runs Sundays as well as week days. It goes through Algona at 5:35 o'clock in the afternoon, arriving at Chicago at 8 o'clock the next morning. It has a chair car sleeper, and day coach, and is a quite citified looking train. The new time card does not make considerablechang- es in the other trains. Going east in the morning the passenger leaves at 10:12, a little earlier. Going west in the morning it leaves at 5:47, also a little earlier. The afternoon passengei west goes at 5:46, a little later. With its fast time and new train the Milwaukee is in shape to furnish excellent passenger service, and its enterprise will, no doubt, be properly rewarded. Tlio Annual KaUroad Talk.

Something About the Show and the Men who Manage It—Now Out for a Week's Trip. Algona is fooling considerable interest in the Uncle Tom's Cabin company, which is doing our neighbors on the south this week, and which is to make its grand tent opening here Saturday, with balloon ascension and outdoor parade, and is going to Burt Monday, Bancroft Prof. Dwyor, ballonist. TueB(laVi nn(1 E1 _ more Wednesday of next week. Both Will, and Glen. Brunson have grown up here and earned every dollar that has gone into the enterprise themselves, and with their company are Hugh Smith, Geo. Kunn, and.Chas. Walker, all well-known Algona boys. They have spared no expense to put on a good show, have a fine street parade, a very superior band and orchestra, a well-trained donkey, a trained mastiff, and a full - blood Siberian blood hound. At tho opening of tho entertainment, after the parade, George Kuhn will give an out-door performance on tho high wire, and Prof. Dwyer make a balloon ascension and parachute jump. Prof. Dwyer has made 129 successful ascensions, using the largest balloon traveling with any show, and he has his $5,000 dog, "Zip," the only dog that makes a parachute drop by himself. This company is the only one giving the play of " Uncle Tom" entire, especially the first act. The closing scenes are tableaux of the ascension of Little Eva and the "Beautiful Gates Ajar." Following the play a concert of comic songs, dancing, specialties, con- tortion and jugglery, accompanied by a fine orchestra, will be given. The boys have people specially engaged for the concert who are not in the play. "What Good Critics Soy. Those who have seen the rehearsals here the past week agree that some first-class performers have been secured, and that the play will be all that is claimed for it. The cast includes Dell. Knowlton as "Simon Legree," the slave trader of the Red river; Mrs. Belle Knowlton as "Aunt Ophelia," the eccentric old maid "who never kissed a white man, much less a nig- ger;" Baby Pearl Knowlton, the smartest " Little Eva" on the stage; C. A. Bishop, the solid planter, "St. Clair;" Lon Brooks, "I'm a lawyer and my name is Marks;" Hugh Smith, who has had two seasons' experience, as stage manager and " Uncle Tom;" Mr. and Mrs. Vernon, Chas. Covell, and others in the remaining characters. Miss Olive Ashley plays " Topsy," and is one of the best actresses in that part on the stage. Besides tho humor of her part she introduces dances, tricks, skipping rope, and wing dancing to entertain the audience. Altogether the boys have a meritorious entertainment to offer to the public, and should have a big opening hero at home. Their tent will seat everybody and will be pitched on the old circus ground, near the Northwestern depot. Tho parade and open-air free show will bo worth seeing, especially by those who have never witnessed a balloon ascension, and who have not lately seen Geo. Kuhn, now one of tho best acrobats and tight-wire walkers there is anywhere. The show will come Saturday, May 13, rain or shine. Let everybody turn out and give the boys a good send-off, and compliment them for their enterprise. TRY the New York Health campany's wheaten; ready in two minutes. W. F.
